According to PG&E, last Friday the lake level was 5137.4′ above sea level, and they think it will not get much, if any, higher.
Their plan is to take the lake down in July a total of 3 feet, then stop until fall, except for minor releases to maintain flow in lower Bucks Creek.
So, now, the launching ramps are in the water, the stumps are covered, but be careful, because they are not far below the surface. Many people have docks still far away from the water, and will have to decide what to do. Get them into the water, or bag it for this summer. Tough choices.
PG&E is also looking for a way to encourage people with boats that produce large wakes to stay farther out from shore than usual, with the reduced water pool. Please be considerate, guys.
But, have a great summer, and pray for No Fires……
